I'm so frustrated. Kendall had a wonderful day yesterday. The weather was beautiful. Our wonderful nurse was with us and we walked Kendall, played, ate, etc..It was a perfect day.
Except for her sugars. They for no apparent reason were up over 200 all day and that warrants extra shots. Her ketones looked good. She slept well last night and dropped in sugars this morning to 69. A huge leap, but she corrected nicely.
Then this morning, Kendall's Aunty Liz came over to give her a pedicure and have coffee with me...She ate nicely, was all smiles, and ready for her usual nap time.
I walked back in to check on her, and you guessed it. Seizure. 45 minutes of hearbreak and questions running through my head. 45 minutes of getting meds, holding her, rocking her, praying. 45 minutes of cursing everything.
She's sleeping now. I did check her sugars in the middle of it and she was 218 after a meal, and ketones were 2.7. Lower than I would like, so that may be the reason. The only thing I can think of is the Amoxicillin. It does have carbs, but the infectious disease Dr. said we needed to finish it at home. So we don't really have a choice.
We are probably going to make more changes in the Levemir. I just hope this isn't a sign that her body is preparing to fight off yet another infection.
I'm bummed. We were suppose to go to the pumpkin patch today, and get out and about, trying to get back into the world....but now she's doped up and sleeping it off. Boo.
Someday we will get back to "normal." right!??
